A Few days ago Dj VLAD posted a tribute to the late great rapper Eazy E on Instagram apparently trying to raise awareness for AIDS and HIV that didn’t go over too well with his daughter Bria Wright.
For years there has been plenty of speculation on how the West Coast rapper died some claims say the legendary Compton rapper died from complications of AIDS, others point to Eazy-E being killed by either Suge Knight or the CIA. Whatever the case Eazy’s daughter, Ree recently took the issue with Vlad’s post and put the journalist on blast for suggesting Eazy-E died from AIDS.

Rest In Peace #eazye. #hiv and #aids are real. Use a condom. Get yourself and your partner tested. There’s a product called #oraquick which is available at every major pharmacy that let’s you take a home HIV test and instantly get the results. There’s a daily pill called #truvada thats extremely effective in preventing HIV if you come in contact with it. Take your health seriously. You only have one life.
In a clip that has since gone viral on social media, Bria claps back at DJ VLAD for suggesting that the AIDS virus killed her Dad even though as she states he knows that wasn’t the late rapper’s cause of death.
“In reference to that post that lame ass dude posted,” Eazy’s daughter says. “For you to post my dad’s obituary and say ‘rest in peace’ but to follow after talking about some, ‘AIDS is real. Use a condom,’ when he knows because he’s spoken to a few members of my family in reference to my dad and knows that it’s not AIDS that killed my father. That shit pisses me off.“
She adds, “Respect my family. If you want to say rest in peace, how you disrespecting my dad’s legacy by saying ‘AIDS is real. Use a condom.’ Like, n***a, that’s not even the case and you know that. My daddy was murdered and you know that shit.“
Vlad made a response after catching wind of Ree’s disapproval for the comments “I recently made a post on @VladTV’s Instagram about Eazy-E passing,” he said in a statement. “In the caption, I not only sent my condolences but also talked about AIDS awareness. I stated that “AIDS is real” and people should use condoms, get themselves and their partners tested, use instant HIV test kits like Oraquick, as well as exploring HIV prevention medication like Truvada.“
Vlad still sticks by his initial statement and says even though many he’s interviewed believe he was murdered he says, “Suge Knight or the CIA secretly killed Eazy, I do not subscribe to this theory.”
